ETIS's latest offering "The earth is not a cold dead place" is a magical journey of textural guitars, rolling bass lines, and a drum sound that is reminiscent of a summer storm.....From the opening track "first breath after coma" the sweeping melodies drift across your consciousness, with some exquisite chord voicings the listener is transformed into actually taking that first delicious breath after being in a coma......"Six days at the bottom of the ocean" takes the you on a trip to the ocean floor inside the Russian submarine as the crushing inevitability of the situation "explodes" into complete silence..... "The earth is not a cold dead place" was described in a review as "music that saved my life", I find statements in this ilk patronizing and contemptuous, however, if music can indeed save ones life, and after almost overdosing on some of the gibberish that is recorded today the sublime peregrination that Explosions in the Sky deliver may well be as close as one can get to an adrenaline shot straight to the heart............Worth every penny you have.....

i have not written many reviews - trying to write only to those albums which 'hit' something in me. explosions debut album did the exact same as this one does. from the beginning of the album the listener is subjected to unothadox sounds coming from instruments of the most commonality. the first track - first brath after coma - reminds me a lot of their last album in style. you can't help but move your body to the riffs created. half way into the song you notice that your foot is lifting up and down, your head is shaking side to side, and your hand patting your stomach trying to follow all of the sounds thrown at you. the second track - the only moment we were together - is slower and different than what you'll hear on those who tell the truth...and while it is different, the listener may venture off of the music a little bit. however, when the third track begins - six days at the bottom of the ocean - it continues the slower building trend of the second but which so much more intensity and emotion falling out of the musical movements. what i love about this track is that it constantly builds and builds but never fully peaks. where with almost all of their songs there is a peak, this one keeps you in the building phrase to only stop at a slow lull to start track four. memorial - the title really tells the mood of this song. the most repetitive of their songs, it makes the listener dig through the music to find the changes and stay ingaged and then at the end, is an explosion of sound rewarding the listener for the first seven minutes of the track. the last track - your hand in mine - a beautiful opener. a smile can not help but creap upon my face as i get two and a half minutes in. its blissful sound coming through my headphones. i can't describe it beyond that.Read more ›

In a time when commercial radio and television are flooded with lame love songs, Explosions is a sigh of relief. Utilizing only two clean guitars, bass, and drums, on their latest, Explosions make a profound emotional statement. Their first, released right before the 9/11 terrorist attacks, contained dark artwork, an image of a plane crashing, and fittingly pessimistic music. This time around, Explosions adopt brighter, white in fact, album art, and the music follows suit. Still rather stark at points, Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place shimmers with hope, triumph, and optimism in the face of modern existence's seeming futility. Fans of Godspeed and Mogwai should latch on immediately to this band, but anyone who values emotional, absolute (no lyrics) music, Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place will simply blow you away. This is my favorite album of 2003 and will probably turn out to be one of my all-time favs. I cannot get sick of it after hundreds of spins in a few short months, and every time I'm touched. Oh, and despite its non-vocal nature, the guitar parts are very lyrical (I GUARANTEE you'll get the melodies stuck in your head). ALL TRACKS ARE PHENOMENAL. PLAY AT HIGH VOLUMES! They're one of the loudest live bands around and they intend for their music to be played ear-splittingly and spine-tinglingly loud!

i think it is important to understand what exactly is minimalism and its influence on music was or is before criticizing the contents of this album or any other album by EItS, GYBE or Set fire to flames, which I would consider more or less the bare essentials of an ambient music listener. first a bit of art history - minimalist art is not abstract art per se, abstraction comes from simplification of an already existing image or concept whereas minimalism is the concept in its purest form or what is perceived to be. yes, anyone can do minimalist art but to think of doing it is the reason behind its existence. like Malevich's white square on a white canvas so is this music - it takes ingenuity and innovation to communicate the concept through pure sound. the technique is always secondary to concept in any art form, eventually what Minimalism strived for was using the most minimal amount of information to communicate which of course leads to using nothing at all. but even nothing can have a concept behind it (i.e. the bizarre 4 min gap in the GYBE's f# a# oo at the end of "providence"). of course the next step would be to use different instruments to reach the next level of dialogue- some musicians like Stanislav Kreitchi create their own instruments - Andrew duke in his "take nothing for granted" uses found blips and static to create music. Sound in my opinion is more pure and more to the point than words - meaning can be lost in translation - even if the language used is your native language - the loss in translation happens when the composer translated what he/she thinks into words and it happens again when the listener translates those words into their own meaning.Read more ›
